Foursquare

More of a courtyard than a service area, and technically only a truckstop but it caters for cars too. It's located at the M6/M56 interchange and used to be extremely popular; it's now considered to be in-line with other Moto services.

Trivia

Moto try to divert all of the lorry drivers at their nearby Knutsford services here, as that only has 27 spaces for lorries whereas Lymm has 600.

The Travelodge motel here closed in late 2013 and was sold onto Ibis Budget who are due to reopen the hotel in May 2014.

The Greggs bakers was the first to open at any UK motorway service area.

History

Lymm was run by Poplar 2000, but it got mixed up with the Granada and Compass merge/diverge mess. To cut a long story short, Moto ended up owning the services and they are slowly dropping the Poplar 2000 branding and replacing its unique facilities with their own, such as WHSmith and Costa.

The truckstop was built next to an original, much smaller one which has been there since the 1950s.

Survey Results

In 2006 the services won a four star loo award.
